Turn the key to on and move the shifter out of park,and back into park a couple times till you feel/hear the key click. With age the mechanism can be sloppy. Sometimes you can turn the key from the accessory position and back to off a couple of times till you hear /feel the click, to get the key to release. Check the side of the console my 94 colt had an oval cover, the size of a silver dollar, you could pop off and manually release the cable hold on the ignition. If you still can not get the key out unbolt the console and unhook the cable manually and you will never have the trouble again.

Security system on 2000 eclispe GT

Use the KEY (not the REMOTE) to UNlock the driver's door or the trunk. Then use the key to START the car, then shut it off. Finally, get out and LOCK the car using the mechanical KEY. That should clear the security system codes caused by disconnecting the battery!
